Just played the game for the 1st time with my daughter. We liked it and I expect to enjoy it more with multiple players.
Not make or break rule questions, but I would like to know the full intention of the designer:
1)When awarding points for player in rooms adjacent to an opened cage, do the points get awarded when the room is physically connected (to the opened cage room)or when there is a door between the 2 rooms?
2)When doing swaps (after playing the card) between 2 rooms in a region do the rooms themselves have to be connected by a door? Say for example you are swapping items in 2 room which are adjacent from the one you are in, they each share a door with your room but not with each other; can they swap?
3)Say you play a swap card to move items in an adjacent room. Does the swap have to be with another room which is considered to be in your region or does it just have to be with a room which is adjacent to it?
Thanks in advance for your response.

I'm glad to hear you are enjoying the game! With more players, you'll have the opportunity to negotiate with other players into helping you out or hindering others. I like playing both with two and with more.

The points are awarding to other players in adjoining rooms. An adjoining room in this game means an adjacent room connected by a door. So, if you unlock a cage in a room with three doors, then there are three adjoining rooms.

Your region is composed of the following rooms:
- Your monkey's room.
- All of the rooms adjoining your monkey's room.

Yes, in your example, you can play a swap card to move items between any two rooms in your region even if those two rooms themselves aren't even adjacent. So, for example, you can swap the items in the adjoining room to your left with the items in the adjoining room to your right. Those two rooms aren't adjoining but they are both in your region.

If you play the swap card (or move one item card), the two rooms that you choose must be in your region. This means that if you don't want anyone to mess with your cage, you can stay relatively safe on the other side of the lab.

Thanks for the quick response. Once I have played it a few more times I will post a review. I totally appreciate when designers take the time to respond to their audiences questions.
